The annual event will return to New York on 5th October for a post-congress tour of the city with local travel partners.
Skål International last met in the US in 1994 in Los Angeles and has not returned to New York since 1955.
Skål International New York was the first chapter established in North America and will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary during the congress.
John J. Ruzich, OBE, Chairman of the Skål New York Host Committee, said: "The response from our global membership has been overwhelming. New York City, our 75th Anniversary and the sailing have created a perfect formula for success. Our dedicated volunteer committee has been working on this event since October 2011 when winning the 2013 bid at the congress in Turku, Finland."
NYC & Company’s CEO George Fertitta added: "Tourism is a cornerstone of New York City’s economy. Last year, the City welcomed a record 52 million visitors who spent nearly £23 billion.
"To date, we’re pleased to announce that nearly 900 people have registered for the upcoming Skål International World Congress this year."
